Know Before You Go

People think this is similar to La Boqueria in Barcelona. While there are some similarities, the big difference is that La Boqueria has a lot of fresh produce, meat, veggies etc., while Mercado San Miguel focuses on sit, eat, drink right there.
The market attracts many tourists, so expect the prices to be higher.
Be prepared, tables are hard to get.
